“Kelly is a wonderful photographer to work with! From our very first phone call, all the way through, her communication with me was 100% thorough.”

Dog Photography Session

A Fee of $250 and a little paperwork is all that’s required to reserve your spot.

If you have ever shopped for art of any kind before, you know prices are all over the map and that is certainly true with photography as well. And like with other art, those prices aren’t easily compared - it’s not apples to apples. With a session fee of $250 and collections starting at $750, you’ll find that my work is neither the cheapest nor the most expensive in the area, but it does represent one of the best values. With a perfect review record on Google and a satisfaction guarantee that I take very seriously, you can invest confidently knowing your money will be well spent.

Digital images, prints, and other products are priced separately.

What's Included:

  • Customized planning consultation
  • Can include up to 2 dogs from the same household. (Add a third dog for $50.)
  • Complete Preparation Guide (Including answers to most of my frequently asked questions like what to wear, how to prepare your dog, what to bring, etc.)
  • 60-90 minutes of on-location dog photography in the Greater Houston area
  • Professional editing of your images including basic leash removal.
  • Two weeks after we meet, you'll receive up to 25-35 fully edited image proofs to swoon over and choose from!

Are you looking for Legacy Images

of an aging or ailing pet? 

Legacy photography is for dogs preparing to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes called an end-of-life session, I will capture some tender moments with your best friend in a relaxed and quiet location. As difficult as this time may be, having lasting images of your best friend can help your grieving process in many ways.

Please don't wait to let me know if you are in an urgent situation, every effort will be made to accommodate your preferred booking date.

Frequently Asked Questions

My dog doesn’t know sit or stay. Is that a problem for photos?

Not at all! Some of my favorite portraits are of dogs standing up. And rest assured, I have a DEEP well of unique sounds and tasty treats to grab their attention—even if it’s just for that split second while I capture each image.

My dog can’t be off leash. Can I still do this?

Yes! Absolutely! Believe it or not, 95% of the dogs that I photograph are on leash. Leashes not only keep your best pal safe, but they’re also important for following local laws when photographing in urban environments. Thanks to the wizardry of Photoshop, leashes will be removed from most final images.

Can I be part of the pet photo experience, too?

Of course! I love documenting the wonderful connection
between you and your dog. I especially love capturing the candid moments you share with your pet.

What time will be meeting?

The most magical light for photography happens during the “golden hour,” which is why I schedule most sessions during the last two hours of daylight. However, certain locations—such as urban areas that bustle with activity during the evening—are better suited for morning sessions, when we can still take advantage of the lovely low-angle light.

For black background equine portraits, early afternoon is best!

Can anyone else join in?

Everyone who lives in your household (furry or not) is welcome to participate in our session. In the interest of minimizing distractions, however, I do ask that only those who will be in the photos come along. If you’re interested in holding a session with your extended family, I’d be happy to put together a custom quote.

What about harnesses or gentle leaders?

I can't guarantee that I'll be able to remove a harness or gentle leader from your final images. If your dog usually walks around with either of these, then I recommend using it to walk to the session and between locations, but swapping it for a regular flat collar while I photograph.

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, I can work with you and spread out payments weekly or monthly. Payment plans will be agreed upon during ordering session. A minimum deposit is required and maximum payment plans duration is six months. Orders are fulfilled once final payment has been received. If you decide to discontinue your payment plan, funds are non-refundable.

How far do you travel?

I am based in Fort Bend County and will travel throughout the greater Houston area. Travel fees may apply for distances over 25 miles.
